Senegal - Agricultural Value Chains Resilience Support Project (PARFA) - July 2021
Oyster cultivation generates more than 70% of the jobs in the value chain and is a key source of income for women. Through the IFAD supported Agricultural Value Chains Resilience Support Project, the oyster farmers, members of the Inter-Village Development Association (AIVD) in Dassilamé Sérère in the Delta of Saloum, have been able to grow their business. However, there is a need for more support to further improve their working conditions and the quality of their products, which leads to increased revenues and allows them to develop their marketing tools.
The aim of PARFA is to sustainably improve the food security and income of small-scale producers – including both farmers and herders – and create remunerative, sustainable jobs in rural communities. It focuses on expanding the access of smallholders and their organizations to effective services and production infrastructure, appropriate technologies and markets.
